if you are oc'ing then it comes down to silicon lottery. i'd say the 290 is faster. i am basing this off my 290. unless you can oc the 780 to 1400MHz.biggrin.gif

can't recommend the 290 if you are not planning on replacing the stock cooler. you've got a 280 . . . here to compare . . .

about 20 - 30% faster. of course, i'll show you my highest oc so far. it can max out C3 at stock using 1080. i had to crossfiere 7900 series in the past to do that.

Out of the box the 290 is slightly faster. They perform about the same once overclocked. The ref 290 is a lot hotter and louder.

Since you play a lot of BF4 and use Sony Vegas (which apparently benefits greatly from OpenCL), I would wait for a non-ref 290.
